Huayi 华艺节 2019 Love Letters 情信 The...
“…this is just me, me the way I write, the way I want to be to you…and you can tear me up and throw me out, or keep me, and read me today, tomorrow, any time you want until you die.”Could the love of your life be just a letter away? Can writing a lifetime’s worth of letters make you fall in love with someone whom you always thought of as just a friend?At age seven, Andrew penned his first letter to Melissa, telling her she looked like a lost princess. She wrote back to tell him to stop writing to her, and he was entranced. For the next 50 years, through hurt and disappointments, triumphs and failures, wars and marriages (to other people), they poured their hearts out to each other in their written exchanges, becoming each other’s closest confidantes.Presented in Singapore for the first time in Mandarin and Cantonese, experience romance the old-fashioned way as Love Letters explores the love and loss shared between a pair of childhood friends. Each heartrending performance features a different pair of actors—Hong Kong theatre practitioners Rensen Chan and Jo Ngai (who last moved audiences at Huayi 2015 with Travel with Mum), as well as Nelson Chia and Mia Chee of Singapore’s Nine Years Theatre.Written in 1988 by American playwright A. R. Gurney, Love Letters was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and has since been restaged countless times and adapted into Mandarin, Urdu and Russian.

Huayi 华艺节 2019 That Which Cannot B...
Prime numbers—random, unpredictable and aimless. Or are they?That Which Cannot Be Divided is an Esplanade commissioned dance presentation that explores the mystery of prime numbers and their relation to life. Featuring two former members of Taiwan’s distinguished Cloud Gate Dance Theatre—renowned choreographers Bulareyaung Pagarlava from Taiwan and Albert Tiong from Singapore— the dance double-bill showcases two diverse works full of boundless possibilities.At first glance, the distribution of prime numbers may seem aimless and haphazard. However, on closer look, the way prime numbers are distributed could be guided by patterns and structured by theories. Is this a reflection of the world we live in? Amidst chaos, we constantly seek clarity, show resilience, and pursue harmony and contentment. Similarly, in the language of dance, one often finds resolution in chaos.About Bulareyaung PagarlavaBulareyaung Pagarlava is from the Paiwan tribe of Eastern Taiwan. During the last two decades, Bulareyaung has been invited on numerous occasions to choreograph and perform for various contemporary dance companies both in Taiwan and internationally. However, his increasing awareness of his Paiwani identity has led him towards a new path, focusing on his own native heritage and working with talented young dancers to explore the complex notions between voice and movements, creating unique expressions of indigenous contemporary dance. Bulareyaung Dance Company was founded in August 2014.About Albert TiongAlbert Tiong is a well-known Singaporean choreographer and educator in contemporary dance. He has created works and trained generations of dancers for Frontier Danceland, Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, LASALLE College of the Arts and The People’s Association, and founded the former Re:Dance Theatre. Currently a teacher with NUS Dance Synergy and Singapore Raffles Music College Dance Faculty, he also conducts regular classes with T.H.E Dance Company and T.H.E Second Company. As an independent dance artist, his works have been presented in various countries.
